THIAPS, The International Analogue Photographic Society is a platform for photographers who love the tactile quality of film-based images, who enjoy the wet and warm smell of developers and fixative, with a strong belief that “Film is not dead; it just smells funny.”

I like saying ‘THIAPS‘. It makes a nice sound…

Back in March, and completely out of the blue, i received a request to include two of my recent Tokyo shots in an upcoming THIAPS Urban book. Despite missing the deadline several times (there was a lot going on at the time…) Frans still included them in the final book. Frans, thank you your patience!

A preview of the entire book is online here at Blurb. My two shots are on pages 28 and 29. If you display it fullscreen you can just about make out the scant details. The book looks really well put together and i think Frans made some interesting choices for the theme.

[While we’re here: apologies for the lack of updates / communication over the last couple of weeks. We’ve moved to Europe (Hamburg, Germany, to be precise) and are still in the process of sorting out a place to live, dealing with the inevitable paperwork, and trying to remembering that we did this for the adventure.

A big post on the whys and wherefores of leaving Japan and coming back to Europe will be forthcoming at some point in the not too distant future.]

    • muchos.

      it’s either that or the sound that a leather bible makes when striking naked buttocks… now there is a mental image!

  1. Oh very very nice. I love the shot on Page 29 (right side). Oh my, I should dig out my Bronica and my 40mm and do some industrial hardcore shooting, or so.

    • that would be good – someone needs to pick up the slack. Tokyo metro will go spare wondering where the white boy with the big camera went!

Wise words...
